26 Mythbusting Moments Necessary Thanks To Movies

People frequently now want to believe in fairy tales that are simply untrue.

The Great Wall of China is the only man made object visible from space. Horns were on all Viking helmets. Cancer is caused by 5G. You get the picture.

Or women always have professional makeup and healthy hair, no matter how difficult their physical aspects are. When everyone comprehends the 'good guy's good intent, he can get away with torment, attempted kidnapping, killing, and massive destruction. Crimes are crimes in real life.

The central character lives in a large, costly, and immaculately decorated mansion with their parents. There is no clutter. There is no chaos.

That exercise is perfectly understandable; even so, many people unaware of those subjects may be led to believe that this is how situations work in real life.
